9th Autumn
Beccles Beer Festival
Beccles Public Hall

Friday 12th - Sunday 14th November 2021

Friday:      4pm - 11pm
Saturday: noon - 11pm
Sunday:   noon - 6pm


Admission to Beccles Beer Festival is free but as in previous years, you will need to buy a souvenir glass for your beer (£3 which is refundable if you do not want to keep the glass).

This year we will be operating a cashless bar, and instead selling £10 cards with which to purchase your glass, beers and food.  Additional cards can be purchased and any balance remaining on a card can be refunded when you leave, used if you visit this year’s event again, or will otherwise be deemed a donation to the event, which as usual is raising funds for BLL and the Lido.  (Note: the Public Hall bar will also be open for soft drinks, bottled beers and ciders, wine and spirits, and will remain cash or debit/credit card.)

Because of Covid, we will be limiting numbers to avoid the crowds at peak times in previous years, but you will still be able to turn up without a ticket and buy a card and glass at the door (we will have card machines but please prefer that you pay cash as this will speed up entry to the event), subject to the Hall not being at capacity. 

However, we do know that some people travel some distance, so if you would like to guarantee entry we will be selling a limited number of advance tickets which guarantee entry before 6pm on Friday or before 2pm on Saturday.  Tickets (non-refundable) go on sale at 10am Saturday 6th November and are £10, which includes your first pre-paid £10 card. Provided that you arrive before your allotted time you can stay as long as you like, and purchase additional cards (cash preferred please).  If you arrive after your allotted time you will need to join the queue to get in.  This system has been successfully adopted by other beer festivals.

We will also be adopting a number of other measures because of Covid – we ask that you please respect these for your own and everyone else’s benefit – please click here to read them before you come to the festival – and this includes NOT coming to the festival if you have tested positive for Covid in the past 10 days, or if you have had Covid symptoms in the past 10 days, regardless of a negative Covid test, or been in contact with anyone who has tested positive in the past 10 days if you are unvaccinated.
